Unfortunately, I know what you mean.

That could be true, but I haven't had much time playing different guitars through tube amps... Hopefully I can soon though. Guitar Center takes anything back within 30 days right?

Does GC not include setup as part of the sale? Most small shops do. You really need to get new strings on it, get the intonation and action adjusted, and start evaluating from there. Pulling it off the wall and expecting it to be perfect is the wrong approach.

hahahahahahahahahaha...most GCs (if any) don't have an in-shop guitar tech. if the salesperson knows how to setup a guitar then you might get a setup, but otherwise the most work I've seen done in a GC was string changing. When I was looking at getting my Jagstang worked on (getting the switch replaced and a Duncan SH-4 installed) I went to GC and they told me it'd take a couple weeks because they'd have to ship the guitar to their contractor to get it fixed...so i took it to a local shop and had it done for pretty much the same price.
